Where I serve

Hello! I'm Dan Sasala! This year will be my third year as a missionary with FOCUS. I will be serving at Southern Illinois Univeristy - Edwardsville as the Team Director. After my first two years serving at the Univeristy of Northern Iowa, I heard the Lord calling me to serve another year in a new way and on a new campus. I am so excited to be able to take all that the Lord has gifted me with and all the experience that He has given me to help more students come to know Jesus. 

My Story

While being blessed to have been raised in the Catholic faith all my life, FOCUS helped me to deepen my understanding of church teachings, the bible, and helped me cultivate a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. I was able to connect with friends and grow in true friendship by having deep and meaningful conversations about faith and many social justice issues. In my incredible experiences with FOCUS I knew that the Lord was calling me to help other college students come to know the love of Jesus and to help them spread it across the campus.

Your Impact

Our primary role as FOCUS missionaries is to help fulfill the Great Commission that God gives us, which is making disciples of all nations. We do this by cultivating authentic friendships with young men and women, leading bible studies, taking students on foreign mission trips, and serving the poor. We have the unique opportunity to fundraise 100% of our salaries so that we can be fully available to the students we serve.  With your support, you are helping to fulfill God's mission for us and helping to fill the future with strong and virtuous men and women who are dedicated to living their lives the way Jesus calls us to live.
